Craig David to headline Castle Concerts

16 March

Brit Award nominee Craig David is set to headline this year’s Castle Concerts. On Thursday, 13 July, he will take to the stage in front of an intimate audience of 4,500 under the stars within the beautiful grounds of Rochester Castle Gardens.

The Medway venue forms part of Craig’s long awaited UK tour which kicks off tonight (16 March) in Cardiff.

Back at the top of the charts

Sixteen years after his debut album Born To Do It reached number one, Craig’s back at the top with his latest album, Following My Intuition which flew straight to the number one spot in the official albums chart when released last year.

With a fan base spanning decades, tickets for this open air, intimate gig with one of Britain’s best male solo artists, are set to be in high demand. Audiences will be filled with a new generation who are listening with fresh ears and for others Craig’s music will spark euphoric nostalgia in fans that have waited for his return. They can expect all the classics and hits from the latest album.

Craig said: “I’m really looking forward to playing at Rochester Castle, there’s always something special about playing outside in the English summer!"

Medway Council’s Portfolio Holder in charge of events Cllr Howard Doe said: “This show is going to be a real treat for fans. The small and unique venue creates a wonderful atmosphere, quite an exclusive feel as only a lucky few get their hands on tickets compared to larger arenas like the O2.

“I know we always say it, but those who want to get their hands on tickets need to be quick in order to avoid disappointment.”
